Home > Winners > #104268


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hanoi Doji Tower

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Gold and Gem Trading Centre

INSPIRATION:
The architecture of Doji tower is inspired by the diamond, one of the most precious and rarest gems in nature. The Chairman of Doji Gold and Gems group’s foundation committee, Mr. Do Minh Phu and Doji leaders did not want this building to be merely a shopping mall similar to other projects, but to build a creative and distinct architectural masterpiece in an historical location in Hanoi.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With distinctive architecture which combines classical and modern styles harmoniously, Doji tower stands and shines like an exquisite giant diamond in downtown Hanoi. Doji Tower has been recognized in the national record as the largest diamond-shaped building in Vietnam and employs the most gold and gem decorations. The high quality and durable materials were chosen ranging from six level marble base to a ten level diamond shape block with custom made specialty glass.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
After more than a decade of research, the Doji tower project, Mr. Do Minh Phu, as lead designer and architects from NKB Archi Vietnam, completed the plans for this building. As reported by the architect community and in the media, Doji tower has overcome countless challenges through many years of design and construction to become an architectural masterpiece, a splendid diamond high-rise, and a symbol of creativity using unlimited innovative ideas.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2010. Due to long time for asking permission and design acceptance by Hanoi Architecture council, the construction process lengthened. The building was first opened in a monumental and impressive inauguration ceremony on september 6, 2019. Doji tower is situated on a golden area of the Hanoi capital, which is the historic junction of three streets, also of three districts in Hanoi.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The base of the building has six floors and is completely tiled with the natural marble Cream Marphil, cut and trimmed by talented workers, forming a solid and compelling base for the upper floors. The 7th floor to the 16th floor forms an enormous diamond block, which is formed from thousands of special glass sheets made exclusively for Doji tower, bringing a spectacular light effect. They were required to be made under absolutely rigorous standards in order to ensure environmental friendliness.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
With a floor area of 1,658 m2 and a total area for use of nearly 19,000 m2, 16 floors and 3 basements, the first five floors are designed to become a modern shopping center of gold, gems and jewelry with a total floor area of over 5,000 m2. The Doji tower is the largest Center for gold, gems and jewelry in Vietnam and is the headquarters of the Doji Gold and Gem group.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Do Minh Phu and the architects from NKB Archi Vietnam designed the Doji Tower as a landmark to promote Hanoi as being a Vietnamese Center for Gold, Gem and Jewelry trading providing multiple venues for this kind of shopping. The diamond shaped design blends form with function and stands as a symbol of the importance of this industry in the country.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part of this design was persuading the 12 members of the architecture council of the city to approve the project. Another obstacle was finding the solutions for special creative ideas, including the best way to cut the glass pieces for the diamond which would eliminate the glare but provide the desired effect.
